GAINESVILLE — Suspended Florida Gators quarterback Will Grier lost his NCAA drug test appeal, a source told the Orlando Sentinel Friday.

The University of Florida later confirmed the news on its football Twitter account, according to the report.

Grier sought to have his 12-month suspension for using a performance-enhancing drug reduced to the remainder of the 2015 season, but the NCAA ruled against his appeal.

He will not be allowed to return until the seventh game of the 2016 season — an Oct. 15 visit from Missouri.

Grier, his attorney, Orlando’s Clay Townsend, and UF’s University Athletic Association argued their case during a conference call this past Monday with the NCAA.

The NCAA is not prone to changing its decisions, but Grier, his family and Townsend were hopeful.
